Support line opened after Shoreham air crash

26 August 2015

The British Red Cross has opened a support line for people affected by the Shoreham air crash.

Trained Red Cross volunteers will be available to provide emotional support and practical advice to those affected by events in West Sussex at the weekend.

The phone line will be open daily from 8am to 8pm for as long as the service is needed.

Laura Bowen, emergency planning officer, said: “Many people have been affected by the tragic events at the weekend.

“We’ve opened the support line following discussions with local authorities and emergency services in Sussex.

“It will offer people the chance to simply talk about any issues they’re experiencing and for our trained volunteers to provide them with emotional and practical support.”

At least 11 people were killed when a Hawker Hunter jet crashed on to the A27 during an air display on Saturday afternoon.

The phone number for the support line is: 0203 417 0300
